Beautiful views and gardens

No suprises, great hospitality, awesome host!

  • 5 of 5

Property was easy to get to and looked just like the pictures online. Furnishings, cleanliness, host flexibility and reachability, location and views were all better than expected. Ali Blackwell is a wonderful host.

Findings to note: Wildlife was abundant (birds, small mammals, lizards, etc.), no A/C in the house but with all the windows open at night A/C was not needed, great proximity to popular beaches yet still "away from it all", romantic for a honeymoon getaway, if vog advisory is present during your stay the view might be impeded, abundant information located in a book in the house ready to answer any question you could have, strong winds are common in this area.

Owner's Response: Aloha Erich, Thank you! The Trades are back and the views have been amazing. You just have to come back to fully enjoy this spectacular spot. Your trip ended, sadly, far too soon and I hope you will be able to return because we will ensure your next visit is amazing and, well, we are going to spoil you extra! Kind regards, ali

More than I expected

  • 5 of 5

Reasonable price, view of the ocean and three bedrooms were what I was looking for in a rental. All three expectations were met. What I didn’t expect were the beautiful starry nights, the gorgeous sunsets, awakening to birdsong, and the peaceful surroundings. The house itself was roomy and comfortable, especially the beds. Kudos to the owner and manager.

Owner's Response: Aloha Therese, and thank you for the review and compliments. We (owner, agent, manager) all worked hard to make sure this home would be, well, exactly as you found it; comfortable, peaceful, roomy, affordable. Expectations met! That's a perfect way of summing it up. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards, ali

Amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, clean, spacious and had everything we needed including sand toys and beach chairs. The view from the lanai is amazing and a great way to start the day. It's also close to my favorite beaches: Mauna Kea and Beach 69 next to Haupuna.

Ali was also super helpful and responsive. All in all great experience.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jon, Thank you for your kind words. It would be hard to beat the view from the lanai for morning coffee, or evening sun-downer! I'm so glad you had a great stay. Kind regards, ali

Great view and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a very comfortable three nights here and really enjoyed the views from the deck! The kitchen is pretty well stocked which made it easy for us to make dinner two nights during our stay. We also appreciated the beach equipment in the garage. My daughter loved looking for geckos on the house (hint: check by the front door and garage at night with the outside lights on!). Overall we were very pleased with our stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kellie, I'm so glad you and your family had a great stay. I love those geckos. So sweet, and useful too. Hard working little peeps that love keeping bugs at bay. Come visit again for some whale watching! Regards, ali
